We are now on the fourth day of the search and rescue effort for a British teenager who went missing in Tenerife, reports The Mirror.

The last time we heard from Lancashire resident Jay Slater, 19, was on Monday. He had informed a buddy that, after missing a bus, he intended to walk back to his accommodations for the NRG Weekender music festival, which was taking place on the Canary Island. He estimated that the trek would take around eleven hours.

His buddy Lucy, who accompanied him to the island for the festival, reported that she got a worried call from him at about 8:15 a.m. on Monday. Jay claimed he had missed the bus and was attempting to walk back, even though he had earlier claimed to be disoriented and in need of a sip of water, reports The Mirror.

The adolescent’s phone then died, leaving the Rural de Teno park, a hilly region well-liked by hikers, as his last known position.

The village of Santiago del Teide is the nearest. He had been lodging in a flat with friends in the southern section of the island, reports The Mirror.

Debbie Duncan, Jay’s mother, took a Tuesday morning flight to Tenerife to assist in the manhunt. She described how her kid, who was going on his first trip without his parents, had been saving money and looking forward to it.

She told ITV: “I was loving that he was going and saying you’ll love it, you’ll come back and you’ll want to go again. Now I just wish I hadn’t encouraged him to go,” reports The Mirror.
